Day 19- I am a “Use-to-BEE”

30 Day Challenge- Day 19 What is your Talent? DANCE!
For those of you who don’t know me or are new to my blog I am a “retired” dancer!!  I have taken dance since the age of 2 and I just stopped at age 27!! Whew, makes me tired just thinking about it. I danced at a studio growing up, competed and even got to perform at Disney Worlds “Magic Music Days”, I was a Pom Girl in HS, danced and choreographed for my sorority at rush and homecoming and I even danced professionally for 4 years. Below is some of the highlights from my professional “career”………….
I danced for Oklahoma’s Arena football team for 4 years…the Yard Dawgz and I LOVED them!!! Can you pick me out below? This is a dance I actually choreographed for our “Pre-Game” show………

Cheering on the sidelines!! Little did Matt know when he met me that he would spend 2 years of his life at sporting events watching me dance from the stands! Get this….he got free season tickets to everything and he said he had his fill of games for awhile after those 2 years were up!

Then I was lucky enough to dance for the OKC Hornets!! It was a dream come true…as far as dance goes the NBA is one of the top places you can take your talent too! And no we didn’t just cheer at games and stand around (that bugs me)…..we danced 3xs at 40 games and practiced over 9 hours a week on top of OVER 40 hours of “appearances”…AND I was working full time. Yes, it almost killed me!

The next are some of the professional pictures given to me from game photographers I am lucky enough to have them as memories!!

We were called the “Honeybees” so that is why I am a “Use-to-BEE” as in I use to be really fit and I use to be someone cool! LOL

Oh yes, don’t kid yourself.. “Save a horse, ride a cowboy” this is OKLAHOMA people!

It was kinda neat signing autographs, we all took turns at half time sitting at a table in the arena….in our home office we have a wall that has all my posters and autograph cards hung…called memory lane!


So that will conclude the Talent portion of this post!

    How very exciting! I did cheer in HS and Pom my first year in college, but I only dreamed about this kind of "career" in dancing.
